LIVE CAMS: EXPANDING OUR UNDERSTANDING OF OWLS

OWL LIVE CAM PARTNERSHIPS WITH

For the fifth year in a row, we have partnered with Explore.org, an arm of the Annenberg Foundation, to share our planet's wildlife and scenic landscapes through Live Cams. For Explore's Pearls of the Planet series, we have now established live cameras on nests of Snowy Owls, Great Horned Owls, Long-eared Owls, and Osprey. In 2017, we introduced the Great Gray Owl cam.

 

The cameras are active 24/7 – when no technical difficulties arise. By day, you can view the scene in color - by night, infrared. These cameras have given us an ability to learn more about breeding behavior of the species mentioned above. The cameras allow us to see the good times, and the bad, in the lives of these animals – including life and death. It can be difficult to watch a chick die, but that's life and we do not interfere – but we do learn. 

 

The cameras have become incredible tools for many reasons. From a research perspective, they allow us to learn more about the owls' life, allowing never before seen behaviors during the night hours. From an educational perspective, they summon endless levels of interest for the casual cam watcher to the scrutinizing, citizen-scientist cam viewer.

In addition to the cams, we conduct live chats with the viewing audience – answering questions and conveying information. This information has been used for the conservation of owls and their needs, and research projects.  Consequently, our conservation message gets directly out to the public and professionals without having to wait for publishing papers.

We are grateful to Explore for bringing these viewing opportunities to the world. Likewise, we are appreciative of the Cam Community who keep us updated and abreast of noteworthy happenings.

Right now is a great time to tune into the cameras with pre-nesting behavior already underway!
